Anonymous users are no longer allowed to leave comments

I'm sorry to say that I have to admit defeat in the war against the spammers. I have been unable to take any automated measures to keep the site free from spam, and it has become too time consuming to keep deleting the spam comments.

If you wish to leave a comment on the site, you will need to request an account. Please accept my sincere apologies for this inconvenience. Rest assured that I am not trying to harvest email addresses so that I can spam people or sell those addresses to others.

Clean URLs

Submitted by Marc on Wed, 09/01/2010 - 9:16pm

I make the assumption that virtually everybody enables clean URLs on their Drupal site. In the default setup of Drupal the .htaccess file is already set to handle clean URLs. When you install Drupal, it checks to see if your server will allow this functionality.

What clean URLs do is to change a URL from something like: http://mydomain.com/index.php?q=name/of/path to this: http://mydomain.com/name/of/path.
